Looking over some pictures from this year, it sure looks like MissA has a slightly cut down canopy. Anyone confirm/deny this??

If it is cut down, it is not by much. Looking at my pics it looks like maybe a slightly smaller bubble, but just barely. It is hard to tell, I'm no Mustang expert.

With a little luck regarding weather, Doc will be bringing his airplane out to Nellis. Last confirmation I was aware of, he's planning on being there. It looks like the weather is going to suck eggs again this year, and will suck during the week prior, again, so it will be somewhat difficult to get airplanes down there. Geez, you'd think that a November show in Vegas would not be a problem but...

The AF has been good enough to open up the window for arrivals for as early as Tuesday but the wx I'm able to check looks pretty punk early week and for the weekend.

Guess we can cross our fingers and hope!

Not so good... everyone... pray to the wx gods!

This is looking like an exact rerun of last year.. only, I don't think they actually forecast it last year, it just happened... so maybe, if they forecast it, it wont happen?????

Friday is practice/media day.. if it rains it out. I don't know if the AF allows anyone who did not practice their performance gets to actually fly in the show.. Don't quote me on that tho..

Have to admit, it's not looking good but then, wx crystalballers are often wrong, let's hope they are WAY wrong in the right direction this time!

IF they can get everybody IN, I LIKE shooting after/in a good rain, the lighting is softer, get some interesting reflections, USUALLY means, nobody else is in the way either, them cummulo-puffy clouds, can be down rite pretty, too. (It's that got lemons, make lemonade, thing)
Last elevator ride/chat with a T-bird, they want the area checkpoints FRESH in there minds, before a routine...
HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT EITHER WAY, SHAKE OFF SOME OF THAT "CABIN-FEVER"

If you go back to when Howie Keef had Miss A. I think you
will find he had a canopy with a two inch "drop". ..unless
it was replaced after the accident ....also I think two feet
off each wing.
